Brownie Lava Cake Recipe is a combination of a brownie cake and the Molten Lava Cake. It is a rich gooey chocolate cake topped with chocolate ganache


For the cake:

  • 180 grams salted butter
  • 180 grams dark chocolate, chopped
  • 3 large eggs
  • 240 grams castor sugar
  • 65 grams self-raising flour
  • 50 grams unsweetened cocoa powder

For the Ganache:

  • 300 grams dark chocolate
  • 300 ml cooking cream

Final step:

  • 20 grams Cocoa powder  (for dusting)


  • For the cake, in a microwave-safe bowl, combine the butter & chocolate together until melted. You can even do this on a double boiler. Once completely melted, set aside
  • Next, add the self-raising flour & cocoa powder in a bowl. Mix well and set aside
  • In another bowl, beat the sugar and eggs together on high speed until light and fluffy. The mixture will be double its volume, this takes about 3 to 4 mins. Add the chocolate & butter mixture into this and beat well
  • Fold in the self-raising flour & cocoa powder mixture as well. Mix well making sure there are no lumps
  • Line a 6-inch tin with parchment paper and pour the brownie cake mixture in it. Bake this in a preheated oven at 180 degrees C for 40 to 50 mins. When you insert a skewer there should be a few crumbs on it, not completely clean as the brownie should be fudgy and gooey
  • Let it cool for a few minutes. Next, remove it from the baking tin and using a round 2 to 3-inch cookie cutter make a hole in the center


  • Heat up the cream in the microwave or double boiler. Add the chocolate to it and let it melt completely. Mix the cream and chocolate well making sure the chocolate is melted completely. If there are any chocolate lumps, heat the mixture to melt it.
  • To make the chocolate lava cake, pour the chocolate ganache in the center of the brownie cake. Let the chocolate ganache flow all around. Dust sufficient cocoa powder onto it. Cut immediately to see the chocolate ganache flow out of the center of the brownie cake
